New vibration crusher drum for compactors in the HC series

Crushing and compacting in a single step makes construction site operations more streamlined

Made for extra-tough applications: Hamm now presents new HC compactors with vibration crusher drum, which have been designed specifically to crush and compact rock and stone in a single operation. Both models have a newly designed tool holder system and offer time, cost and emission savings of up to 50%, making them particularly efficient and environmentally friendly. While the HC 250i C VC is available from early 2024 for countries with exhaust emission standard EU Stage V/ EPA Tier 4f, the HC 250 C VC is available in countries with exhaust emission standard Tier 3 from autumn.

Wide spectrum of application for diverse operations:

The type designation says it all

The HC 250i C VC and HC 250 C VC compactors create the ideal conditions for crushing and compacting mixed ground, basalt, granite or other construction materials with similar compressive strength As with the predecessor series, this specification is indicated by the type designation “VC” (Vibration Crusher). The separate “C” also symbolizes the reinforced drum drive, capable of inclines of up to 60%.

With the HC 250i C VC and HC 250 C VC models, Hamm is presenting new compactors for crushing and compacting stone – for markets with exhaust emission standard EU Stage V/ EPA Tier 4f and for countries following exhaust emission standard Tier 3 (from autumn 2024).

New-design tool holder system

A highlight of the VC compactors is the newly designed tool holder system. The drum of the VC compactors has 126 tool holders, which can be fitted with cutting tools using the quick-change system. There are currently two different types of cutting tool available:

Round-shank cutting tool for stone
Suitable for low-abrasive mixed ground and stone with low compressive strength.

Heavy-duty cutting tool
Suitable for working with hard stone and highly abrasive materials, with carbide tip and armoring.

Easy tool changes
Attaching the tool inserts is quick and easy. No special tool is needed, keeping maintenance and servicing costs low.

What’s more, existing machines (H 25i VC, 3625 VC) can be fitted with the new-design tool holder system by switching the drum.

Ultra-robust design

All components in the VC compactors are specially designed for tough applications involving stone: Drum drive and underbody section have been reinforced, 3-point articulation ensures optimum steering characteristics and driving safety, and HAMMTRONIC monitors and controls all the important machine functions. Suitable raceways have been fitted on the drums especially for transportation.

The 25 t machines are supplied with heavy-duty tires for rocky terrain, driver’s cab and the Easy Drive operating concept all as standard. When it comes to comfort, operators will appreciate the seat with extended backrest, especially during tougher applications. An air-sprung driver’s seat can be selected as an optional extra.

Benefits of the VC compactors

  • One machine for multiple applications: Road construction, dam building, foundation-laying, mining, landfill work, tunnel construction
  • Easy to use
  • High flexibility thanks to VC tool holder system
  • Reduces the number of machines and transport journeys required
  • Reduces fuel consumption
  • High crushing capacity and compaction power
  • Saves time and money
  • Robust version of all components designed specially for heavy-duty tasks
